In Compliance

  • The Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA) requires districts to notify parents annually concerning asbestos-containing building materials in schools. This summer, the district removed asbestos from a number of facilities related to construction occuring at those sites.
  • The Janet B. Johnson Parents' Right to Know Act requires notification when application of pesticides/herbicides are used on school property. As a general rule, the district applies a dandelion preventer at times when there is no scheduled use of an affected area, and a pesticide on an as-needed basis. Each facility is inspected monthly, and when required, the least harmful persticide (Category IV) is used in affected areas.
